Go far away

Staying vs. leaving. I understand both choices, or at least I think I do. In The Civil Wars’ case, we don’t really know what is up. But words like “internal discord” and “irreconcilable differences” usually don’t point to something healthy. That’s a lot of smoke.

Whatever the case may be, I’m a big fan of Joy Williams and John Paul White, and I’ll always be thankful of the interview they gave Speakers in Code back in February of 2011. Oh, and that show at The Pageant back in January — I have so many great memories from that.

I want you to listen to a song of Williams’ that I’ve always loved, and I thought of it yesterday when I read the news.
